Salva Kiir, South Sudan's president, has held bilateral talks with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir in Khartoum to discuss the outstanding issues that remain following secession in 2011.
As a result of the meeting, Bashir lifted a threat to block South Sudan's oil exports. The two sides also agreed to implement a peace deal signed last year.
